New York Summer Secondment

Associates from our Prague office can work in our New York office as part of our New York Summer Secondment annual program. During their four-week stay, Prague associates are considered visiting lawyers and continue to work on their own matters originating in the Prague office.

Participants in the program will be invited to the various summer associate events, will have the opportunity to meet and network with their colleagues based in the New York office, and will get to see what it's like to work at our US headquarters. They will also have the opportunity to develop contacts with partners and senior lawyers and build an international network that will be valuable throughout their careers.
